What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


During my 16 week scan my consultant told me that my son wasnt growing as he should be. I had scans every 2-3 weeks to keep an eye on him. We all thought he would be premature and small but he would survive.

On the Thursday i was told he had stopped growing and he had no hope for survival. On the Friday my local midwife listened to his heart beat and told me to record it. I couldnt settle that day, i needed to save him. I rang every maternity unit i could but they all said the same thing.

I went to hospital as i was a mess and at 5pm just 8 hours after hearing his heartbeat i was told he had passed away.

Finley was born sleeping at 26 weeks. His cord and placenta were abnormal so he suffered severe IUGR. Otherwise he was perfectly healthy, he was just too small to survive.
He weighed just 420grams but was beautiful. Perfect in every way.

I stayed with him for nearly 3 days thanks to the hospital having a cuddle cot which kept him cool to allow me to spend time with my boy who id never see grow up.

Funding is so sparse within the nhs and having an extra cuddle cot available is so important for parents like me. Id hate to have not been able to have time with Finley.

Stillbirth is most definitely the worst thing ive ever gone through but things like this help make an unbearable time a bit more comforting.

Finley was held for just a moment but he is loved forever.

Thank you all.
